In 2011, I read "La femme farouche" #3 of the Blakewell family in french by Pamela Clare. The english version "Ride the fire" is the same story. I fell in love with Pamela Clare's book, by reading this one. I loved this story so much I decided to write this review. I loved her characters Bethie and Nicholas. Beautiful story of love,tenderness and passion. In the conquest of the west, there is only one rule for pioneers, its surviving. . She was forcibly married, by her father-a man, to an older man than her, Bertie finds herself alone, widowed and pregnant, on the edge of a forest where the Indians lived. She must therefore protect herself from them. When a rider comes to her home, Bertie Stewart did not hesitate a second: she disarms him and binds him to her bed. However, Nicholas Kenleigh disturbed her security. His scars evoked a tortuous past, but his smoldering gaze is more dangerous. I love Ms. Clare's style of writing. This book is very fascinating to read. I highly recommend this book! I was hooked from the first page and could not put it aside. I also like the time period of this beautiful story. If you are a fan of Pamela Clare, then this book is for you. She is a great writer!
